Copy-SqlDatabaseMail

This function migrates database mail configuration values, mail servers, accounts and profiles from one SQL Server to another. By default, all database mail objects are copied.

To migrate only one object type use the -Type parameter and specify ConfigurationValues, MailServers, Profiles, or Accounts.

The -ConfigurationValues, -MailServers, -Profiles, and -Accounts parameters are autopopulated for command-line completion and can be used to copy only specific objects.

If the object already exists on the destination, it will be skipped unless -Force is specified. Force drops and recreates the object.
